I truly believe that one of the most incredible things about success is having the ability to give back to those less fortunate. So, to put my money where my mouth is, each month I will be partnering with a different charitable organization or initiative that is making a difference in our community. For every review and subscriber we receive for the BizBalance Podcast in iTunes for that month, I will make a donation to that organization. Little by little, we can change the world!
This month as we kick off the school year, we will be helping support an initiative called Backback Meals. I was absolutely shocked when I found out that more than 30% of the students at our local schools are on a free or reduced lunch program, and many of these students go without food when they are not at school. In partnerships with our local schools, the Backpack Meals team sends students home with their backpacks filled with nutritious food every Friday.
Move for Jenn, founded by Jenn and Miles Andrews, provides financial support to active and young amputees so they can receive the activewear prosthetics that insurance will not cover. Jenn, a sarcoma surviver and amputee herself, knows the power of staying active and has committed her life to supporting others facing similar hardships. To learn more about Move for Jenn, click here!
